Media Statement - Gladys Berejiklian

Today is a sad day for NSW.

Gladys Berejiklian has been the leader we needed when it has mattered the most.

More Classrooms Brightened up by LED Lights

The NSW Government is putting out the call for local tradies to install smart LED lights in NSW public schools with the announcement of the third tranche of schools to benefit from the LED Lighting Upgrade Program, taking the total number of participating schools to more than 800. 

The $157.8 million initiative was launched last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is targeted at replacing old inefficient lights in NSW public schools with smart LED lights. 

James Griffin, Member for Manly welcomed the news that schools in the Northern Beaches will have old inefficient lights replaced with smart LED lights, benefiting the eyes and minds of students and the power bills for schools.  

NSW Set to Halve Emissions by 2030

NSW is set to attract more than $37 billion in investment while slashing emissions by 50 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, under updated projections and objectives released as part of the Net Zero: Stage 1 Implementation Update.  

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the state’s new objective of halving emissions by 2030 – up from 35 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030 –  shows that NSW is serious about setting itself up for the future while helping the world decarbonise.

“Our Net Zero Plan is expected to attract more than $37 billion in private sector investment into NSW, support more than 9,000 jobs, save households about $130 on their electricity bills and help NSW become Australia’s first trillion-dollar state by 2030,” Ms Berejiklian said.
